I believe this photo was actually taken some time after 1927. There is an awning just beyond the car on the left that was not there yet in 1927. The awning in this photo is still there at what is now the Beatty Club. At time of this photo it was probably the 'Mom & Pop Ritching's Store'.

If you zoom in on the awning above the car parked on the left you can see that it says, "HH RICHINGS". This was the 'Mom & Pop Richings Store'. She ran the store and he had a garage and gasoline. The building on the extreme left is "Remick's Garage".
